USPS reveals additional Bugs Bunny stamps

The fifth and sixth Bugs Bunny stamp images will show scenes from 1957’s “What’s Opera, Doc?” and 1944’s “Hare Ribbin’.”

The Postal Service revealed the fifth and sixth Bugs Bunny stamp images this week.

In the fifth image, Bugs does a diva turn as an operatic Brunhilde in blond braids and a winged helmet. The scene comes from the classic 1957 short “What’s Opera, Doc?”

The sixth image, from 1944’s “Hare Ribbin’,” casts Bugs as a mermaid in a curly 1940s updo.

USPS revealed the images July 21-22 on its social media channels, including Facebook and Twitter.

Earlier, the organization revealed the first four stamp images, which show scenes from “Rabbit of Seville” (1950), “Space Jam” (1996), “A Hare Grows in Manhattan” (1947) and “Knighty Knight Bugs” (1958).

Additional sneak peeks are planned on social media before Monday, July 27 — the 80th anniversary of Bugs’ official screen debut — when the Postal Service and Warner Bros. Consumer Products will dedicate all the stamps.

The full 20-stamp pane will feature 10 designs, with each design repeated twice.

Each stamp will show Bugs — who has always been known for impeccable impersonations and masterful masquerades — in some of his most memorable getups.

The stamp artwork was created especially for USPS by Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc., featuring work from Warner Bros. Animation artists.

Greg Breeding designed the stamps, while William J. Gicker served as art director.
